DREAM Seminar: Automated and semi-automated memory management in real-time

Seminar: DREAM | February 19 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 490H Cory Hall


Jan Vitek, Purdue University

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)


Abstract:
This talk looks back at techniques for rescuing real-time programmers from the tyranny of object pools and manual memory management. I will present a retrospective look at region allocation and real-time garbage collection for hard real-time systems. I will demonstrate the impact of scheduling techniques on predictability and present experimental results obtained on the Fiji Java virtual machine.

Bio:
Vitek is Full Professor and Faculty Scholar in the Computer Science Department at Purdue University. He led the development of the Ovm hard real-time Java virtual machine. He is a founder of Fiji systems. His research interests span from programming language design and implementation to real-time and embedded systems. He is the chair of SIGPLAN.
